SWEEPS is Back!

SWEEPS2017
Do you have metal scraps or old/broken jewelry just sitting around? Did you know you could do good with that stuff just cluttering up your jewelry box?

SNAG and Ethical Metalsmiths are again teaming up for SWEEPS! Just toss those scraps or broken jewelry (refine-able metals like gold or silver) in a bag and bring it to the SNAG conference in New Orleans. Or you can ship it to us during the month of May (see donation form instructions). Hoover and Strong will refine the metals and donate the money back the two organizations equally. Good for you and good for the organizations that support our field!

Every little scrap helps — look for the drop off site at the conference or ship it! Thank you!

Send in Your Studio Sweeps

ethical_metalsmiths_logoEthical Metalsmiths and SNAG are once again teaming up for a unique fundraiser and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Logo-blueSpring is here! Perfect time for a SPRING CLEANING! Sweep out your jewelers’ benches and send us your metal scraps. These can be turned into valuable dollars that will help keep the nonprofits you support to remain healthy and able to maintain the programing you have come to appreciate and rely on.

Anyone can make a difference and feel good about giving back to these organizations that support our field and improve our world. Any amount of scrap and sweeps will be accepted! We’ll even toss in SNAG and Ethical Metalsmiths stickers for your generous efforts! If you get your donations sent in by June 30th you will even be entered in a drawing for a 1 year SNAG membership, a 1 year Ethical Metalsmiths membership, or an original Boris Bally keychain!

Sweeps and scraps will be refined at Hoover & Strong, a family run precious metal supply company that has been serving jewelers for the past 103 years. Hoover and Strong products are not only 100% recycled but also carry the SCS third party certification of recycled content. They will be donating a generous portion of their refining costs to this project. Hoover & Strong is an avid supporter of the “green” movement and feels it is their social, environmental and moral obligation to produce beautiful products in a way that does not destroy the earth’s resources or its people. –Hoover & Strong

Send them in any time before June 30, 2016. Use this donation form & mail your Sweeps and other jewelry item donations to: Peter Calvert, c/o Ethical Metalsmiths, PO Box 18161, Richmond, VA, 23226.
